FIM's Continental Union
for Motorcycling in Africa



Posted on June 22, 2018 at 4:45 AM

This popular annual event will take place at the Germiston Sports Club on Saturday, June 30, and July 1. This will be the second year that the 1000 Bikes Show will be held at this venue after previously having been located at the Germiston High School for many years.

The Classic Motorcycle Club’s 1000 Bike Show has grown from humble beginnings as a small display at the Johannesburg Carlton Centre in 1985 to what is now, arguably, the largest, dedicated classic and custom motorcycle show in Africa.

Chief organiser and club chairman, Rusty Thorns, says he expects more than 400 motorcycles to be on show, while there are always a host of interesting models ridden to the show by visitors which can be viewed in the parking area.

Triumph, which is currently being re-established in South Africa as a standalone company under a new distributor, will once again have a prominent stand of old and new models. Brad Anassis is displaying his track and drag racing teams and the Suzuki Katana club members will display more than 20 of these iconic machines.

There will be more than 100 trade stalls, with many of them offering food and drinks, while the popular Backbone band will again provide entertainment.

Concours d’Elegance competitions for custom motorcycles (Saturday) and the classics (Sunday) will take place, with winners being announced at 14:00 on the Sunday.

Entry fee is R80 per person with under 16’s coming in for free. Gates open at 08:00 and close at 17:00.

Those interested in exhibiting on the show or wanting more information should contact CMC chairman, Rusty Thorns on 082-411-1687 or at [email protected] or on the club’s the website
